That is not strictly true. Temple sealings are reserved for worthy members only. Adult LDS priesthood holders, such as bishops, can, and do, perform marriages between men and women who want to be married in a Christian non-denominational wedding. LDS chaplains in the military will even perform Jewish and other non-Christian marriages if there is not a chaplain of that faith available. They will not, however, perform same-sex marriages.

Roberts is compromised…the administration has something on him, and there was a hint about a payoff in the footnote to one of the dissenting opinions. The two females on the bench should have recused themselves, as their opinions were biased from the start. The Court can’t be trusted with giving an accurate weather report when they’re standing out in the rain.

“The only religious groups who are against same sex marriage are evangelicals and some black denominations (Southern Baptist)”. Wrong. The LDS Church is against it, the Catholic Church is against it, and some other Baptist churches and Orthodox Jews are not behind it either. Quite a large group of ‘no’ votes there.
You want to talk inequality? The socialist-run countries in Africa are highly stratified–the leaders are filthy rich, and the rest of the populace is dirt poor. Socialism in action. The socialist countries in Europe are only marginally successful because the US takes care of their defense. If they had to pay for their own defense, things would be very different.
I don’t go anywhere on the Web without every ad/spam/trojan horse blocker I can get on my computer.

It’s a perfectly clear and proper sentence. I am a proofreader. Your powers of understanding and decoding the English language are obviously limited.

Because…..only bishops, kings and “celebrities” were wealthy enough to be buried in a coffin that would be kept in a stone building. The common schlub would have been wrapped in a shroud, laid reverently into a hole in the ground, and then covered by dirt. Not much would have been left after a couple of years.
There would not have been much treasure buried with a bishop, as most Catholic priests and leaders did not have large personal fortunes. And not all societies buried wealth with the dead.
Archeologists are very careful to document everything they find, and the most valuable finds are not generally gold or silver, but pottery, cloth and everyday utensils that give insight into the lives of those long-gone civilizations. You really need to get out more.

No, “anyone” can’t legally get a gun. And your childish rants are not the best way to get a point across. You know as well as anyone else that there are laws on the books that are designed to keep those who shouldn’t have firearms from getting them. But all the laws on the books will not persuade someone who deliberately flouts those laws to refrain from getting a gun, nor will they keep morally-impaired people from using guns if they so desire. Get off your high horse and use some sense, if that’s possible.

Woodrow Wilson was president in the early 1900s. The Civil War ended in 1865. He was a progressive who did what all progs do. But he had nothing to do with that war.

I don’t know what a “covetern” is, but something is disabled here. It was the Democrats who fought to keep slavery (Stephen A. Douglas), who fought against abolition of slavery, who started the KKK, who enacted Jim Crow laws (Southern white Democrat governors), who segregated the US armed forces (Woodrow Wilson), who sent dogs and police to terrorize school children (Gov. George Wallace). It was Republicans who emancipated the slaves (Lincoln), supported abolitionists, organized peace marches (Martin Luther King, Jr.) and continued to bring former slaves and their descendants into the mainstream of American life. Learn your history before spouting off.

Sharing this! I knew it was from Shakespeare, but not which play.

You two really need a dictionary. “Wreak” means to cause, as in “wreak havoc”. “Reek”, on the other hand, means to have a strong smell. Choosing your words carefully allows others to concentrate on your brilliant erudition, rather than your sloppy command of the English language.

Then what you have read is incomplete. TT oil that has been properly distilled, tested and packaged is perfectly safe to use internally. Improperly handled or sourced oils are always problematic. Know your source.

Because we’ve used drugs, and then used oils, and found the oils generally work better and with no/fewer side effects. High grade essential oils aren’t a panacea for everything that goes wrong; there is no “magic bullet”. But for what they can do (stop pathogens from reproducing, soothe the nervous system, help normalize blood pressure, etc.), they do it more safely, less expensively and effectively. If it works for so many people, in so many different ways, under different conditions and situations, then it might be helpful to thoughtfully study the subject.
